11-28-11 Elf on the Shelf

I've seen these around for a few years, but as I was describing it to Sam (when we saw the commercial for the Elf on the Shelf movie, naturally, since the book has been such a smash hit) I realized this thing kind of disturbs me.

I just don't get the warm fuzzies from the idea that my Christmas tradition is to bring a spy into the house to threaten my kids that, if they're naughty, the Elf will be reporting it to Santa, both nightly and in great detail.

And, if I'm understanding correctly, this only happens from Thanksgiving to Christmas. The other eleven months? OPEN NAUGHTY SEASON!

Maybe I'm missing something.
